comes of old umbrellas?
Thoro aro at present In this country
at least twenty-four millions of privato
umbrellas, exclusive of thoso remaining
unsold In manufactories and shops.
Eaoli umbrella-owner buys atloat ono
now umbrella overy year, Ids 'previous
ono having been stolen, lost or worn
out. We thus see that thoio la an an
tiiml imimrunt dlsannoaranco of twontv-
four millions of umbrellas, and tho mo
iiiont wo fully comprehend this fact wo
perceive tho Importance of tho question:
What becomes of these umbrellas?
Wo may ndmlt that many of them aro
stolen. Men who would not steal a ono
cent post ago stamp will, nevertheless,
feci no hesitation in seizing upbV any
umbrella that is temporarily sopHiratod
from ltd owner nnd In carrying It olf
with triumph. About ouo-sixth of tho
title to all umbrellas now in aotivo uso
is nrobablv of this soml-folonlous nature.
There is said to bo a rich umbrolla-sell-or
in this city whoso stock costs him ab
solutely nothing, sinco it is collected 'by
playing u on the consciences of his fol-low-mon.
Ho walks along Broadway,
and when ho sees a desirable umbrella
lie stops tho man who is carrying It and
remarks: Kxcuso mo. my friond, but
you havo my umbrella." Atleastovory
fourth man thus stoppod knows that his
title to tho umbrella in his possession
will not onduro Investigation, and so ho
hastily surrenders tho umbrella, remark
ing as ho docs so: "I was looking for
an owner for it, and intended to send it
tojTolioa headquarters this afternoon."

But, conceding that ono-slxth of our
notlvo umbrellas aro stolon or aold for
the second tlmo, thcro still remain
olirhteen millions of umbrellas whoso
annual disappoaranco is to bo accounted
for. Lot us assume that of this numbor
two millions aro furnished with now
covers and a fresh coat of varnish, and
so re-enter into circulation as now um
brellas. Still there aro sixteen millions
more which vanish utterly from tho faco
of tho earth.
In tho case of tho disappearance of

cupied, for many years, tho attention of
our statisticians and other-. wluntUhj

small size enables them to successfully
conceal themselves. Old umbrellas
havo not this advantage Next to a
hoop-skirt, an old umbrella is tho most
obtrusive thing in nature. Not only
does it refuse to conceal Itsolf, but ft
attacks ovory ono who comes within its
reach, and clings desperately to his logs
and garments. Its ribs protrude in all
directions, Ilka the tentacles of the oc
topus, and no amount of foroo or ingo
mtity can compress it into a small simeo.
To got rid ot an old umbrella will bo

It is well established that old umbrol
las aro not kept in houses. Tho house
wlfo when questioned as to what has bo
como of any given old umbrella will
always reply vaguoly: "Oh, it has boon
thrown away." Of eourso, this cannot
bo understood literally. If sixteen
millions of old umbrellas wore thrown
into tho street overy year thoy would bo

blown about in clouds muoh thicker
than tho ordinary city dust cloud, and
thoro would not bo a horso or pedestrian
in oxistonco who had not sustained in
juries from old umbrella riba. When
tho housewife throws away " an um
brella it unquestionably vanishos, but
what slio calls "throwing away" is
obviously a peculiar and mystorlous act.
Hasty thinkers may assume that old
umbrellas aro cast out Into vacant lota,
whoro thoy aro promptly devoured by
goats. This may soem a plauslblo
tnoory to any ono but a zoologist. Tho
lattor knows, however, that whllo tho
goat may bo roughly described as an
omnivorous animal lie is not umbrcl
livorous. Undoubtedly goats do cat
hoop-skirts, and In tho days when hoop
skirts were fashionable, thousands of
goats woro fattened upon them ex
clusively. Tho umbrella has so many
of tho characteristics of tho hoop-skirt
that ono would naturally suppose that
it would tempt tho appetite of goats, but
it Isawoll-ascortalnodfaet that forsomo
unexplained roason no goat will touch an
umbrella, except whon sutVorlng from
starvation. Prof. Tyndall kept a goat
for povon days without food, and otlorcd
him an old umbrella ovory dav, but tho
goat would nottouch it until the seventh
day, wnon, oeing ovorcomo wiin
hunger, ho ato three ribs and part of tho
handle, and died two hours later with
symptoms closely resembling thoso pro
duoed by strychnine. This oxporiment
may bo regardod as conclusive, and wo
must acquit tho goat of all share In
causing the disappoaranco of umbrollu..
To somo extent it is possible that old
umbrellas aro used in ohoap restaurants,
tho ribs being served up under tho namo
of asparagus, but only a very small pro
portion of sixteen millions of umbrellas
can bo annually used hi this way.

umbrella as a club by a vigorous female

A Court Defied.
A honrlng boforo Judgo Finlcttor yes
terday on tho petition of Henry Histino,
of No. 2,221 Frankford avenue, to ob
tain tho custody of his child, ended in
an extraordinary scene, in which a
mother's lovo dolicd and defeated a de
cree of court. An order had been made
upon llisllno sovon years ago for the
support of his wlfo nnd little one. Ho
had fallen $1G0 behind in his payments.
Tho present notion, tho solicitor for tho
guardians of tho noor suggested, was
possibly only a shift to escape tho pay
ment of that indebtedness. Histino,
iiowovor, charged that his wife was not
a proper porson to havo control of tho
child. Testimony was produced to
show that Caspar Khaw, a man who had
abandoned a Wife and six children, lived
in Mrs. Illstino's houso, at No. 2,257
Momphis street. She had gone nut rid
ing with him, sometimes alono and
sometimes with tho child. She had ac
companied him to Atlantiu City one
time, and onco went with him to a beer
Mrs. IUstinc on hor part admitted tho
carrlagorldlng nnd the visit to Atlantic
City. Sho strenuously denied, however,
that sho had been cullty of any creator
violation of tho properties. Sho had ac
cepted Shaw as a boarder, sho said, be
cause the sum ho pnid her eked out tho
llttlo her husband was forced to give her
and the ipittanco sho earned by sowing.
Mrs. Ilistino'B brother testified that he
had .occupied tho room with Shaw up to
four months ago, whon ho loft his sis
tor's houso to got married. A largo
number of wltncssos, chlclly women of
respoetnblo appcaranco, testlfiod that
Mrs. Histino was quiet, inoflensive and
industrious mid treated her child with
proper consideration. A letter from a
teacher said that tho child was a con
stant and apparently happy attendant
Further testimony tended to show that
Histino was given to drink. Ills coun
sel said that ho would not ask that tho
child bo given to him direct, but that it
bo awarded to Its crandmothor. Mrs.
Histino' s counsel pleaded warmly against
tho child being taken away from its
mother at all, and contonded that a case
to warrant such a proceeding had not
been mado out.
